Is this another example of KELO’s war on the SD GOP? Between this and Kristi Noem’s non-speeding story their bias is ridiculous.
KELO decided to run a story regarding the hotel site the RNC gave the state delegation to the National Convention in Tampa later this summer.
They call it the Grand Old Party and when South Dakota delegates head to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, they’ll be staying at a hotel that is notorious for spring-break style parties.
This week South Dakota was assigned to stay at Shephard’s Beach Resort in Clearwater, Florida.
It?s a resort known for its Sunday beach parties, dance parties and night life. And it will be home to South Dakota delegates during the Republican National Convention in August.
SD GOP Executive Director Tony Post made me proud with his statement countering KELO’s absurd story.
“It does have this stigma of being a spring-break kind of hotel, but you know what, it’s not March and it won’t be filled with 18 to 21 year olds. It’s going to be filled with delegates who are devoted to making sure we elect the next President of the United States,” Post said.
To appreciate the ridiculousness of the story you truly need to watch the video. Or maybe KELO’s portrayal of the GOP just expanded the party’s appeal to the 18-25 year old demographic?
